Indian Ceramics Triennale
Indian Ceramics Triennale
The Indian Ceramics Triennale, launched in 2018, aims to showcase and nurture the growing diversity of ceramic art expressions in India and bring the best international practices to an Indian audience. Chief among its objectives is encouraging artists to experiment and create an open, inclusive platform that showcases their experimental projects. Exhibitions, talks, workshops, screenings and performances make up the ten-week programme of the travelling event that explores alternative, experiential, conceptual and site-specific approaches to ceramic art making. Among the artists who were part of the inaugural edition were Kate Malone, L. N. Tallur and Satoru Hoshino.
The second edition of the Triennale Common Ground will be held at Arthshila and other venues in New Delhi in January 2024. It “proposes to explore the ground—metaphorically and literally on which we meet. The ground we walk on is uneven. We are separated by privilege, politics, motivation, experience and access to knowledge, yet we remain bound by a common humanity, a common heritage and a co-dependant future. We are all—every one of us keepers of this earth. “
This Triennale aims to create a dialogue “between our varied pasts and presents”, “between material and methodology”, “between congruence and diversity”, and “technology and tradition” through the language of clay. Common Ground being “firmly located within the complex urban fabric”, “artists are encouraged to engage with dualities of degeneration/regeneration, exclusion/inclusion, lost and found histories, building bridges between the myriad anomalies.”
The Triennale is inviting proposals (both individual or collaborative) “that push the boundaries of clay practices while exploring commonality, diversity, and engagement. It will focus on practices that mediate between readings of precedent and practice, historical and contemporary, material and ephemeral.” You can find more guidelines for submitting the proposals here.

2. Mark your calendars for the workshops.
3. Attend the symposium to meet the artists and mingle with the speakers.

It has both international and domestic terminals and is well connected to most of the cities across the globe, with a number of airlines operating on a regular basis. Popular carriers like Jet Airways, SpiceJet, Air India, IndiGo and Oman Air have daily flights to Jaipur. Flights to international cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Sharjah and Dubai are also connected from this airport.

By Rail: You can travel to Jaipur by trains such as Shatabdi Express, which is air-conditioned, very comfortable and connects Jaipur to many important Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jammu, Jaisalmer, Kolkata, Ludhiana, Pathankot, Haridwar, Bhopal, Lucknow, Patna, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Goa. Some of the popular trains are the Ajmer Shatabdi, Pune Jaipur Express, Jaipur Express and Adi SJ Rajdhani. Also, with the advent of the Palace on Wheels, a luxury train, you can now enjoy the royalty of Jaipur even when you are on the move. Operating to, in and around Jaipur, this luxurious ride for a train leaves you in awe.
